I'm thinking of going to a barebones landline and will be forwarding its calls to my Ooma number. But if I cancel Caller ID on the landline, will I still be able to see Caller ID on Ooma for the calls that have been forwarded from the landline?

Wayne,

Does this not work for you? According to Dennis P, this should work:

You do not need to have ooma Premier to get call-waiting, but you will need to work with your phone company to get CFB added to your line. I will e-mail you offline the phone number that you need to have your calls forwarded to.

Another option is to forward all your calls to ooma (not just when busy). This has the added advantage of you getting Caller-ID (since ooma now sees the incoming call) without paying your phone company for it. The downside of this is that if your Internet connection drops out, then you won't be able to receive calls.
